Retiring chief who agreed direct entry recruitment is dubious about scheme

The outgoing chief constable of one of the forces looking to take on a direct entry inspector says he remains dubious about the concept.

Derbyshire Constabulary’s Mick Creedon is due to retire this week after 37-years in the job, and in the new wing of the force’s HQ where the fire service recently moved in, he spoke to Police Oracle about his career.
